Holly Cole's eponymous album was first released in 2007 and features the singer accompanied by a variety of small bands, mostly with brass and reeds played by many of New York's top session players. Several arrangers supplied their talents for the album, including Gil Goldstein, Marty Ehrlich, and even Holly Cole herself.
2xHD is Fidelio Technologies’ proprietary mastering process through which audio masters of all formats, including analog tape, Protool HD, DASH, digital audio tape (DAT), 16Bits/44.1kHz or even a vinyl disk (in cases where the master is lost) are converted to the powerful DXD format (24Bits/352.8kHz) to create a unique listening experience.
The process uses extremely high-end audiophile components and connectors. In some cases we even use battery power in order to benefit from the cleanest power source possible. This variable and tailored equipment combination creates the most accurate reproduction of the original recording, unveiling information previously masked by the use of analog EQ, transformers, patch bays, extended cable length etc. The selection of components is critical, as many A/D and D/A converters are unable to pierce through these digital filters that bring a ceiling effect to the sound. The 2xHD system preserves the dynamics of the original master, so if the listener finds that the 2xHD version sounds less loud than the original CD, a slight increase in volume will present a far better dynamic range.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme, two music lovers determined to experience only the warmth and breath of the music, without hearing the equipment.
